John Deere’s high-productivity sweep options are recommended for the high-working-speed market, and perform best at speeds of 11-16 km/h (7-10 mph). With a low profile and curved wing shape, the high-productivity sweeps provide low draft and consistent penetration while easily getting through tough and heavy residue. Compared to Tru-Width sweeps, high-productivity sweeps are designed to exert less draft and retain their shape for longer wear life so producers can stay productive in the field longer.
The high-productivity sweeps are available bolt-on and the knock-on Perma-Loc versions. They fit all 47-degree standards with 44-mm (1.75-in.) hole spacing and 11 mm (0.4375 in.) that currently take Tru-Width sweeps, both John Deere and other makes.
The Tru-Width design offers the following benefits:
- Maintains full cutting width and point through the life of the sweep
- Gives greater wear life and improved performance over regular sweeps
- Provides superior scouring and penetration
- Works soil well for level seedbed and good seed-to-soil contact
- Gives excellent chemical incorporation
- Wears evenly and pulls easily
- Replacement without charge if breakage occurs before appreciable wear
Perma-Loc sweep High-productivity Perma-Loc sweep
Perma-Loc utilizes a self-tightening ratcheting system for easy installation. Indentations formed in the sweep stem provide the spring clip with a locking surface. The adapter edge, sweep, and spring all act together to tightly lock the sweep to the shank. The operator simply pushes the sweep on by hand to the first notch (audible click). As the resistance is increased (ground engagement), the sweep progressively wedges tighter. The mounting design minimizes lost sweeps and wear on adapter.
Utilizing the removal tool to depress the spring through the stem access opening and a tap with a hammer easily releases the sweep from the adapter and spring.
Perma-Loc sweeps have the advantage of using a Tru-Width™ design for penetration, residue flow, and long life. The proven 47-degree sweep angle minimizes soil slabbing yet promotes soil movement. The narrow stem enhances excellent soil and residue flow. Stem geometry ensures soil flow over the spring access opening, effectively separating and lifting flow to a point higher on the shank. The force of soil flow is reduced on the shank, improving shank life.
Tru-Width sweeps with the Perma-Loc adapter can seamlessly move the high-productivity sweeps. The high-productivity sweeps uses the current Perma-Loc adapter for 47-degree curved standard, N237614.
